Scholarship Programme


Everyone should have a fair chance to discover who they are and all they can become.





What are Scholarships?

At YMCA, we believe that every child and young person should be given an equal opportunity to develop their interests and fulfil their potential. We are proud to offer support for families who are unable pay full price for a youth membership.

Opportunity for all

Scholarships are available for Youth Villager Memberships funding up to 50% of the overall cost of both programmes. If you want to be part of the Village but would struggle with the monthly expense, please get in touch.

Scholarships are also available for our holiday programme, Camp Williams. Learn more and apply on the Camp Williams page.
